If you are looking for a set of coins that are in brilliant uncirculated condition, then look no further than US Mint Sets. These sets contain specimens of each of the coins used in circulation in a given year. The coins in the sets are from 2 different US Mints, and as such, each Mint’s set is packaged in their own sealed cellophane packaging. And while these Mint Sets have typically contained 10 or 11 coins, in 1973, the Mint Sets contain 13 coins with the addition of the Eisenhower Dollar, one from each Mint. The Eisenhower Dollars were exclusively available in the Mint Sets in 1973, none were made available for circulation. Presently, Silver.com has these 1973 US Mint Sets available for purchase online.

Coin Highlights:

  • Set delivered in sealed cellophane packaging!
  • Set contains thirteen 1973 coins from the US Mint!
  • Total of 1,767,691 mint sets were issued in 1973.
  • Each denomination has its own obverse and reverse design.
  • Each coin displays its respective face value in US dollars.
  • Please note – some sets may be missing the outer envelope/sleeve/box.
  • Also note – some of the packaging may not be in perfect condition.

The Mint Sets included dollar coins for the first time in 1973. Both the Denver Mint and the Philadelphia Mint packages included an Eisenhower Dollar. The Eisenhower Dollar increased the number of coins in the set to 13, up from their typical 10 or 11. They also increased the face value of the set from $1.83 to $3.83. However, even more importantly, the issue price of the Mint Sets increased from $3.50 to $6.00.

Mint Sets suffered a significant decline in sales from 1972 into 1973, falling from 2,750,000 sets in 1972 to 1,767,691 sets in 1973 – almost 1 million fewer. Many people point to the price increase as the key factor in the sales drop-off. From the 1973 low point in sales, Mint Set sales marked nice annual increases, finishing off the decade with sales of 2,526,000 sets in 1979.

The 1973 US Mint Set includes 13 uncirculated coins separated into 2 packages. The Denver Mint package – identified by its red edging – includes 6 coins. Included are one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar. The other package – identified by its blue edging – includes a total of 7 coins – 6 from the Philadelphia Mint and 1 from the San Francisco Mint. Included are one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar from the Philadelphia Mint and one Lincoln Cent from the San Francisco Mint.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
